Figure 1. Predicted turkey hepatitis virus (THV) genome organization based on sequence comparison to known picornaviruses. Dotted lines above the genome depict the location of the original sequences obtained by high-throughput sequence analysis. Conserved picornaviral motifs and predicted potential cleavage sites along the coding region are indicated in the bar below.
